10/20.- San Sebastian, Teatro El Kursaal


The Kusrsaal Venue is in the Gross neighborhood, across the Zurriola Bridge, in the picture.

The Kursaal has a long history. The original building, inaugurated in 1921, housed a casino, a theater and dance hall. In 1972 the old Kursaal was demolished, and plans for a new building were started, but the new Kursaal was not finished till 1999. The new Kursaal's building is a work of Rafael Moneo, and today houses several cultural events, among them the San Sebastian Film Festival.

The Teatro Kursaal sits in front of the Gross Beach, a family oriented beach facing the open ocean, also popular among surfers.
